That Big Diamond Ring Kanye West Gave to Kim Kardashian Is a Funny Story

Something “from adidas… cuz he’s funny like that.”

Something about Kim Kardashian’s appearance was noticeably larger when she stepped onto the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards — her diamond ring. Alongside Kanye West, Mrs. West flaunted the diamond that shined a bit brighter than the 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz one the rapper proposed with in 2013. Her new rock is a 20-carat whopper, which she says is actually a gift from Ye after he signed his deal with adidas.

Kim sat with Andy Cohen for an intimate conversation during Advertising Week 2016, where she gushed on all the deets: because of Kanye’s latest deal with Three Stripes, he was able to upgrade the glacier — engraved with adidas — on her little hand.
